Today my sobriety has improved my relationship with my late Mother. Even though she did not live to see me quit, I know she would be proud of me, and it brings me a little more peace amidst my grief.

Today my sobriety improved my relationship with my father.
He sent me a card in the mail with some old photos tucked inside.
If I was drinking the envelope might've laid around for over a week unopened by me.
If I was drinking, I might've even thrown it out without realizing it.

Today, sobriety improved my relationship with my Grandson.
If I'd been drinking still, I wouldve rushed his bath and bedtime routine so I could hurry to be able to drink.
Instead, I got to read to him, sing to him, and rock him to sleep.

Today my sobriety improved my relationship with my daughter.
When she had a medical scare today i could be present and strong for her.
And i wasn't faking it.

Today my sobriety improved my relationship with my girlfriend. Tomorrow is the anniversary of her son's death, and she needed me to talk to tonight, and I was there. And I wasn't buzzed up.

Today my sobriety improved my relationship with my cousin. We are like brothers but my drinking brought us to arms against each other. We now enjoy each others company once again. He brags about my sobriety constantly. I personally feel no need to do that myself, but it does feel good when others do.

What a nice thread

Today I am (it's morning here) getting a bit closer to myself.
Furthermore I like my goldfish and they like me.
If they could speak they would write and sing a song for me.
Proberly.

With my daughter for sure! We carved pumpkins together. Like I would ever be that involved when I was drinking. Then we ate some popcorn together shes fascinated at how I can throw them up in the air and catch them. She trys but it tends to end up in a mess!

Today sobriety has improved my relationship with myself.
I want to be respected now, not "liked",
So I move away from those who disrespect me, and in doing so,
I respect myself more. And I like myself better!

Today my sobriety improved my relationship with a good, beloved friend.
Today also improved my relationship with my father and my grandmother.
Just reaching out and trying goes farther than I ever dreamed.

Today my sobriety has improved my relationship with my grandparents. My grandpa went through the same ordeal, was really bad, then decided after a tragic event to change his life. He put down the bottle and never looked back, 30+ years for him, hes keeping track of my progress as well. My grandma looked at me the other day and said "its so great we can depend on you again!"

Thats coming from one of my biggest supporters and critics. Looking back I was so worried "my friends this, my friends that." With the exception of friends who are basically family, its more about your real family and making them proud of what your doing with yourself! Thats a better feeling.
